Classification society Bureau Veritas (BV), South Korean boat manufacturer Vinssen, and the EcoLabs Centre of Innovation for Energy (EcoLabs) at the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to commercialise of eco-friendly marine propulsion system technology and products.
Under the agreement, the group will develop a pilot project in Singapore demonstrating hydrogen-based power generation by discovering in-depth knowledge about hydrogen to be used as an eco-friendly marine fuel by integrating hydrogen fuel cell systems on harbour crafts.
BV’s new Centre of Excellence – innovation, and Centre for Alternative and Renewable Energy (iCARE), will be leading the initiative and looking forward to working with Vinssen and NTU’s EcoLabs to produce commercially feasible studies that could empower organisations to take up sustainable growth and work towards a greener future together.
Following the agreement, the parties will be moving on to make detailed discussions on the project.
